769 Possible Causes for Hypermetabolism

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    However, some hypermetabolic conditions may mimic malignant neoplasms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    […] minor beneficial effects on his involuntary movements. 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/ computer tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) demonstrated pronounced hypermetabolism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    A positron-emission tomography-CT scan demonstrated a 2-cm hypermetabolic parapharyngeal mass, initially interpreted as a skull base tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drug-induced Fever

    Drug-induced fever is a symptom of an adverse drug reaction wherein the administration of drugs intended to help a patient causes a hypermetabolic state resulting in fever[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Positron emission tomography (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose detected two intensely hypermetabolic lesions limited to both adrenal glands.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    Similarly, severe burn injury also has a hypermetabolic response as part of its presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Circulatory collapse and dehydration under excessive hypermetabolic state presumably suppressed the source of energy and oxygen for muscle cells, leading to cellular damage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thyroid crisis, also known as thyroid storm, is a rare complication of thyrotoxicosis that results in a hypermetabolic and hyperadrenergic state.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leukemia

    Other presenting symptoms and signs are usually nonspecific (eg, pallor, fatigue, fever, malaise, weight loss, tachycardia, chest pain) and are attributable to anemia and a hypermetabolic[merckmanuals.com]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    In some circumstances the delayed onset of the hypermetabolic state may hinder timely recognition and treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a pharmacogenetic disorder of skeletal muscle that presents as a hypermetabolic response to potent volatile anesthetic gases such as halothane[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Malignant hyperthermia is a rare but well-described hypermetabolic disorder of skeletal muscle that can be potentially fatal if untreated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature presenting with simultaneous hypermetabolic lesions in the prostate and lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    GA lesions showed hypermetabolic images on positron emission tomography, an interesting finding of unknown significance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] cycles of chemotherapy. 18F Fluro -de-oxy Glucose (FDG) PET / CT in this case helped in establishing a primary hepatic lymphoma by demonstrating the absence of pathologically hypermetabolic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypermetabolic tumor regions were segmented semiautomatically and the metabolic tumor volume (MTV), mean standardized uptake value (SUV mean), maximum SUV (SUV max) and integrated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
